Guns N' Roses are set to headline Rock on the Range at Crew Stadium in May
Rock on the Range is set to return to Crew Stadium May 16-18, and this morning organizers announced the full lineup for the annual hard rock festival.
Highlights of this year's fest include two bands Alive's own Brad Keefe included on a May 2013 list of 10 bands that should play Rock on the Range: Guns N' Roses and Slayer (or, more appropriately, f-----g SLAYER!). Other standouts include ambitious Atlanta metalheads Mastodon, the always-excellent Gojira (read our 2013 interview with the French crew right here) and Motorhead, fronted as always by the ageless Lemmy Kilmister.
A few quick thoughts on the poster announcing the lineup: (1) In what world do Avenged Sevenfold, Kid Rock and Five Finger Death Punch deserve billing over Slayer (even with a lineup missing Dave Lombardo and the late Jeff Hanneman)? (2) Jim Breuer has a band?

Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, January 24, and start at $99.50 (plus applicable fees) for a general admission weekend pass.
